The production took audience members through 100 years of possibility. This type of envisioning should be seen over and over again until it becomes the new reality of the Indo-Caribbean woman’s experience.
Migrating to Washington D.C. at the age of 14, her curatorial work heavily focuses on migration, particularly from Guyana, and examines the intersections at which art, activism and social change connect. We were happy to speak with Ali recently about the ways in which her chosen profession shines a light on artists of the Guyanese diaspora.
Emmy-nominated filmmaker, comedian, and fellow brown girl Kiran Deol’s latest gift to the world is her short film “American Haze,” a personal account of her family’s migration from India via England to the United States.
So frequently have I been subjected to microaggressive language over the last several weeks, that I have compiled a list of things which have actually been said to me multiple times by well-meaning white people including friends, but which have just proven to be harmful rhetoric which further perpetuates the racism that runs rampant far more visibly now than what it seemed before.

Last Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that Harriet Tubman, heroic abolitionist and civil rights icon, will grace the front of the $20 bill, which Politico calls “a historic move that gives a woman prime placement on U.S. currency”.
SOLD is a powerful and deeply moving film that serves to highlight child trafficking and modern slavery through the story of Lakshmi, a spirited 13-year-old girl from Nepal.
